Houses at Victoria Avenue School
On enrolment, pupils are placed in one of four school houses – Kowhai, Pohutukawa, Karaka and Koromiko. The house system encourages interaction between senior, middle and junior pupils and provides a platform for leadership skills to develop in our senior pupils as they take up “house captain” roles. Families are grouped in the same houses.
Staff members and House members meet twice a term to generate House spirit and to discuss and plan the different events and activities. Each student in each House is involved in co-operative / competitive sports, arts activities and special events.
